Full solutions for Living by Chemistry | 2nd Edition
Element in which the 5f orbitals are only partially occupied. (Section 6.8)
A copolymer in which the different homopolymer subunits are connected together in one chain.
A property of a solvent (vapor-pressure lowering, freezing-point lowering, boiling-point elevation, osmotic pressure) that depends on the total concentration of solute particles present. (Section 13.5)
A technique by which compounds are separated from each other based on a difference in the way they interact with the medium (the adsorbent) through which they are passed.
A chemical reaction that proceeds with evolution of heat and usually also a flame; most combustion involves reaction with oxygen, as in the burning of a match. (Section 3.2)
A theory that accounts for the colors and the magnetic and other properties of transition-metal complexes in terms of the splitting of the energies of metal ion d orbitals by the electrostatic interaction with the ligands. (Section 23.6)
The spreading of a charge or lone pair as described by resonance theory.
The process of preparing a less concentrated solution from a more concentrated one by adding solvent. (Section 4.5)
A mode of radioactive decay in which an inner-shell orbital electron is captured by the nucleus. (Section 21.1)
The arrangement of electrons in the orbitals of an atom or molecule (Section 6.8)
The negative charge carried by an electron; it has a magnitude of 1.602 * 10-19 C. (Section 2.3)
An OH group.
An equation of state for gases that embodies Boyle’s law, Charles’s law, and Avogadro’s hypothesis in the form PV = nRT. (Section 10.4)
A series of atoms, ions, or molecules having the same number of electrons. (Section 7.3)
An analytical technique for measuring the mass-to-charge ratio (m/z) of ions.
In a Lewis structure a pair of electrons assigned completely to one atom; also called a lone pair. (Section 9.2)
A measure of the force exerted on a unit area. In chemistry, pressure is often expressed in units of atmospheres (atm) or torr: 760 torr = 1 atm; in SI units pressure is expressed in pascals (Pa). (Section 10.2)
Secondary (2°) amine
An amine in which nitrogen is bonded to two carbons and one hydrogen
A conformation in which a hydrogen atom and a leaving group are separated by a dihedral angle of exactly 0°.
A geometry adopted by an atom that has one lone pair and a steric number of 4.
